The man who was brutally arrested on a Kampala street has been released on Police Bond.

Yusuf Kawooya, a Democratic Party activist was released today afternoon after his lawyers tasked the Uganda Peoples Defense Forces to “bring forward the real people” behind the gruesome torture of the suspect.

Kawooya was arrested by over 5 gun-wielding men on Kimathi Avenue on Thursday before the video went viral on social media.

Kawooya, has since been in detention.

He was ordered to report back to the offices of the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) on October 31.

On Saturday, the UPDF paraded 5 suspects accused of brutally arresting Kawooya including Moses Rwamwenge and Daniel Senkungu, Omara.

Democratic Party has since cast doubt on the suspects paraded as not the real people in the video.

Kawooya had earlier revealed that he was questioned about his region during detention, as well as whether or not he belonged to the ADF terrorist group.
